ZipWorld sees thousands of visitors pass through the gates every day but for the first time ever something different was sent down the wires.

Teaming up with Dayinsure Wales Rally GB the pair filmed a short video of one of the rally vehicles strapped to the zipwires and flying through the air at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns site.

The video, named #Skydriver, was made to promote the upcoming Rally which will race through the area on October 4 to 7, including, for the first time ever, a stage through the slate caverns.

Edited for social media audiences, the 90-second video stars Matt Edwards, a Rhos-on-Sea based driver who is currently leading the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship, plus a brief cameo appearance from Elfyn Evans - the first, and only Welsh driver to win a round of the premier league FIA World Rally Championship.

Not only is does the car fly along the zipwires, Edwards also takes it for a spin around the mountain.

Wales Rally GB managing director, Ben Taylor, said: "To promote the thriving adventure sports destinations in North Wales which, of course, includes the World Championship rally, our original thoughts were to put some of the top drivers down the zip wire.

"But, together with those at ZipWorld and our title partners at Dayinsure, we all got a bit carried away."

Dayinsure founder and chairman, Dennis Ryan, said: "We offer short-term online insurance on almost all kinds of vehicles, but this was one car that we certainly wouldn’t be keen to cover."

Evans is no stranger to flying in a rally car, but even he said he was quite happy being a spectator for this little stunt.

He added: "The stunt sounded absolutely crazy when I first heard about it and, believe me, it was even crazier to witness. I’m just glad it wasn’t me in the car."

The stunt is believed to be the first-ever feat of its kind performed anywhere on Earth.
